Grundy County News January 2019
Happy New Year! We had a very busy holiday season but couldn’t have done it without all of you!
As we continue to grow, we urge all of our participants to bring neighbors and friends with you to our community café program and we encourage you to take part in the many opportunities we have to offer. Please join us as we travel to Coal City, Mazon, and Minooka, to provide a community café meal! We also serve a congregate lunch at Saratoga Tower in Morris Monday through Friday at 11:30 AM. On Wednesday and Friday it is followed by Bingo (provided we have our minimum of 5 participants.) The cost for these meals depends on the day but is a suggested donation of $3.50 to $6 per person. We do ask that you RSVP to 815-941-1590 by 9 AM on Monday of that week so we are able to make sure we have enough food for everyone and remember, you don’t have to live at the Towers to participate so please come join us!
Our party this month is at Saratoga Tower on Wednesday, January 30th with our Winter Carnival for Chinese New Year! Pork Chop Suey w/Rice, Oriental Vegetables, Dinner Rolls & Butter, Pears, Dessert, Milk all for $6! Come early for games and prizes, stay for lunch and Bingo afterward.
Whistle Stop Café and R Place both provide a pre-determined senior meal twice a month for $6. We also offer Great Plates meal coupons that are good for either R Place or Whistle Stop, and those are $6 each. They are usable at any time when you make your meal selection from their “Great Plates” menu. You use that coupon to pay for your meal.
Our Home Delivered Meals program provides meals delivered to your door. Volunteers deliver the meals Monday through Friday between 11 AM and 1 PM. You will receive a hot meal and the cold pack that includes your bread, milk, and fruit for the day. Additional meals and or weekend meals are also available. If you live in Grundy County and are in need of meals please call us at 815-941-1590.
Are you looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity? Being a driver for our program could be the perfect fit! It could be one day a week, one day a month, or even one day a year whatever works for you. We also have volunteer opportunities with our community café program. If you are interested please give us a call at 815-941-1590.
It was wonderful working with you all. Thank you for all you do for CNN. We will look forward to it again this year!
Please come out and join us at one or all of our café opportunities and remember if you are looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity, we just may have what you are looking for!
